Found this one locally. I'm going to look at it this afternoon. The guy says the hydro pump is out, says it won't move forward or reverse. I have a 1650 that is very rough but runs and moves good, so I figured I might use it for parts for this one. He says the kohler runs good. He's asking $250 for it. Is this a fair price for this tractor in this condition? I've been looking around for a parts tractor locally for months, this is the first I've come across. Thanks for any help.

Is that why the Ebay auction was ended?   :D

 

From his description, I think it's worth the asking price.

I didn't realize he had it listed on eBay. I found it on Craigslist, he listed it last night. He says he thinks the deck is a 60" but he's not sure.

I would say that's fair, being you have a way to make it go again.

3 pt, tires look good, straight tin with patina.

That deck looks rotted thru, but maybe some good parts there.

 

I see someone cut the dash away to get behind it. That seems to be standard

practice for those that can't take the time to remove the steering wheel. Shame.

That's the 4th one I've like that recently.

 

He says the pump is out. Does the lift cylinder work?

I think that the running engine and the hitch are worth the asking price. Good Luck, Rick

Will, I didn't think to ask him if the lift cylinder worked. That's a good point you bring up. If the lift cylinder works then that would mean the hydro pump is good and maybe it has some other problem?

Ask to see the engine run and just buy it. If you make the mistake of fixing it for him, he may decide to keep it. That has happened to me several times. Good Luck, Rick

Excellent point Rick, I'm not well educated in these tractors, I've just recently become a gt addict lol. I've opened my mouth on a few car deals though and ruined them by saying what was wrong with them. My minds made up, I'll be buying this one. Thanks for all the advice fellas!

Yep, just got it home. The guy was a ford guy too. Made a deal on some mustang parts while I was there lol. I haven't had time to mess with it yet. It runs good, the engine is a dark blue color, I figured it may have been rebuilt at some point? The engine on my other 1650 is black.

It's only a 48" deck, came with some other peices that look like a cultivator. I'll post pics of that tomorrow.
